Be­ware, ratepay­ers

The Dominion Post - - Opinion -

So , Sir Pete and Sir Dickie are a lit­tle miffed that they can’t have ev­ery­thing their own way as re­gards their ul­ti­mate van­ity project, are they?

As usual, they throw all the toys out of the cot again to en­sure they get what they want (in this case, a beau­ti­ful build­ing to house Sir Pete’s col­lec­tion of toys at lit­tle ex­pense to them­selves and max­i­mum profit).

It is time for Welling­to­ni­ans to wake up – these peo­ple do not even cross the road if there is noth­ing in it for them. They are not phi­lan­thropists, they are mul­ti­mil­lion­aires with an eye to the bot­tom line. The push­ing through of the ‘‘Hob­bit Law’’ and the mas­sive ex­pense of their World War I glo­ri­fi­ca­tion projects should be a warn­ing to ev­ery­one. Ratepay­ers be­ware. BILL MOSS Vo­gel­town
